Devil Dog Brew

Light summer dinner for 2

The weather is great and the grill is just begging for use! This recipe is for the, 'seafood' lover out there who wants to enjoy a great summer evening on the patio yet make a meal that is easy to prepare so they can sitdown and enjoy each others company along with great food and not have to go to a busy restuarant! I call this one, "Mexican Style Tilapia with cherry salsa'

For this one I used a tilapia fillet rubbed with my, 'Old-Soldier Mexican Poultry/Seafood' rub and made up a cherry fruit salsa. For the side I called on good old, 'Uncle Ben' and chose his, 'Spanish style rice' along with a bit of Yellow Tail Sangria! For dessert I chose a selection from my local Kroger's Market. O...

Summer grilling delight

South Seas Delight!

It's summer here in Colorado and at our place we like to spend as much time as we can out on the patio creating on the grill and giving the event a theme. This recipe is quick and simple and as with all my, "Old-Soldier" creations, the only salt and/or sugar is what you find in the condiments that you use.

I use flash frozen Mahi Mahi fillets from Trader Joe's market which I like because they are fresh caught, flash frozen and come from sustainable fishing practices. along with the mahi I served grilled pinapple slices as the side. It only takes about 3 minutes per side to give them the grill marks and warm the slices. It's not on the ingredient list but adds to the meal.

Another great part of this recipe is that ...

End of season special!!

One- pan Honey Mustard Pan Fried Salmon

Need a simple and quick meal for the weekend or after a long work day? Here's a salmon dish that only takes a total time of around 8 to 10 minutes to create for two! I used my Old-Soldier Coffee Infused Mexican Poultry/Seafood Rub and on the salad wedge and peas my Old-Soldier Coffee Infused Salad Seasoning. This meal is gluten - sugar - salt free so should work for those with a gluten or diabetes issue.



Smothered Mexican Chicken Breast

Standing in the kitchen with the just a few things left in the fridge before a vacation, I was faced with the task of finding something for dinner. I found that I had a few chicken breasts that I could definitely use. Instead of just making the same old bbq or grilled breasts or fajitas, I found myself creating this great new meal. I think you'll really love this one and it's so simple.

Here's what you will need:

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Green Chili
  • Black Beans
  • Old Soldier Mexican Poultry Seasoning
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Cheese
  • Jalapenos

Marinade for the chicken:

  • Worchester Sauce
  • Olive oil
  • Lime Juice
  • Old Soldier Poultry Seasoning
  • Cilantro
  • Smidge more garlic

I only marinated the chicken for about 6 hours, but feel free to do them overnight. Take the breasts and throw them on the grill until they are nearly done - they should be slightly pink inside yet. While those are grilling, take the beans, tomatoes, jalapenos and seasoning and stir together in a 9x13 bak...

Chicken Kabobs Old Soldier Style

Being sick of the same old flavours on the grill, we came up with a great recipe that uses Mexican Poultry Seasoning from the Old-Soldier seasonings blended together with a few extra ingredients for a great new twist on regular old Kabobs. Enjoy these Chicken Kabobs that you can do either inside with the broiler or outside on the grill.


Fish Fry the Old-soldier way

Summer time means quick easy meals that aren't to heavy. With my Western New York upbringing that usually meant at least one or two fish fry dinners a month usually on Friday night at a restaurant along the lake enjoying the sunset and a cool breeze.

I don't have the lake here in Denver but having a casual Friday night dinner pool side is even better and for one thing, no mosquito's along the front range!!!

Keeping in mind I am concerned about my health I wanted the fish fry to be as healthy as possible using the Old-soldier Mexican poultry/seafood seasoning since it is salt free, sugar free, and all natural. I also chose panko crumbs since they are low in sodium for the batter for the fish. I chose a salmon fillet and a farm raised cat fi...

Pork Rub ala TJ

Pork can sometimes be such a bore to eat - it's always the same type of sauce or rub with no real zing or zest. Here's a great recipe using two of the Old-Soldier Seasonings along with a few easy to find ingredients. This is one of those you can make with as much heat as you like as the fruit in it gives that sweet end of the deal.


This is one we used with the pork loins, though you can use it on ribs as well. Here's what you need:

  • Old Soldier Chili Seasoning - approx 2T
  • Old-Soldier Pork Seasoning - approx 3T
  • Honey
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco
  • Serrano or Jalapeno Peppers
  • Crushed Pineapple or Minced Apples (or applesauce)

Place these in a food processor and puree them together. Again, remember you can play with the amounts of peppers and fruit. I went with 2 peppers and a small container of crushed pineapple, a few shakes of tabasco and worcestershire sauce and 1/2c of honey. You could add a bit of bbq sauce in this if you want - I didn't add any this time.

You can either put the meat in the sauce or brush it on the meat as it grills - all depending on whether you want to use the remaining sauce after the meat is cooked.


Enjoy and let us know on any of our social media pages what you think - as well as how hot you made yours!

It's Christmas Spice Mocha Time!
